In January, La Gente’s current staff had the privilege of meeting the founders of La Gente, including the first Editor-in-Chief Samuel Paz. It was a moment of reflection and praise for what we as a publication and we as a Latina/o community have developed into.

Since the very first issue of La Gente on February 16, 1971, the mission has been to share stories of Latina/o struggles, triumphs, and arts, which are otherwise absent in mainstream news outlets. And 43 years later here we are, presenting you with our 2014 winter issue.
